"In my 17 plus years of brick making experience, adding the MCC Moisture Control System from Journey Electronics Corp. has been the best improvement in our extrusion process as of yet. Our quality has improved because we can achieve a consistent penetrometer reading day after day. In the past, we could only control hardness by opening or closing gate valves as the extruder amps would rise and fall. This system controls hardness mostly by die pressure which is a better indicator of actual hardness. It saves downtime on a daily basis by reducing scrap, re-run time, and clean-up time. I, as well as the operator, are very satisfied with the performance of the machine as well as the customer service we have received."
